Needs work. But here it is. First submission.


Show, not tell
The story of every life
Show that you're angry
Eyes and lips giving hints
Warping like wood under water
Bent in strange, gnarled ways
But give no reason why
The tap's been on all night
Bend, not break
The belief of everyone
Bend your own sadness
Hands calloused from effort
Use it to propel you forward rapidly
Like a shooting star darts
Across the sky, only to
Stall out on the highway.
